Lescott fumes after abuse from City fans
Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott has accused his club's supporters of subjecting him to unnecessary abuse during Saturday's FA Cup tie at Blackburn.
Lescott was unhappy that a small group of City fans singled him out for criticism in the 1-1 third round draw at Ewood Park.
The England international, who has been linked with a move away from City in the January transfer window, took to Twitter to vent his frustration a few hours after the final whistle.
"Can only apologise for not showing apperception after the game but some comments I heard from a small group of our fans were unnecessary," Lescott tweeted.
"Won't go into what was said but it was non footballer related and uncalled-for. Apart from that, your support is always welcome."
Lescott has made only 14 appearances under new City manager Manuel Pellegrini this season and reports claim he is a transfer target for Tottenham and Newcastle.
